social security. of course he didn't. i had assembled more people that hated john kerry than john kerry assembled that hated george bush. that doesn't lead to a man date for governance. that's a mandate for gridlock which is exactly what we got. >> mr. tyler, how do you explain karl rove's power within republican circles? are people simply stupid? are they prepared to part with their money because he's a persuasive salesman? >> no, a lot of people that give to karl rove are very smart people, they're entrepreneurs and they do great work. i'm hearing from them now. and karl rove is ver persuasive. when you talk to him, he knows his stuff but he didn't know his stuff here. what it gets down to, martin, you had 14 million people who didn't show up in 2012 -- that turned out in 2008. you have to reduction of 14 million voters. that's very significant. that tells me this was not a national campaign, that it was a tactical campaign. therefore, the battleground states mattered. voter contact mattered. we lost every single one of the battleground states, and it turns out -- and i think it's act
it to john kerry who right now looks like he might take over for lee on paw net two if and when he ever leaves. >> well, then it would be obvious the republicans wouldn't support her. if you are operating from the inside of this administration, you probably don't think that there would be that much of a negative review of her. if in fact she was just doing a good job in going out there and saying that on sunday. >> i don't think he wants to spend his political capital fight fourth susan rice. i think that's my opinion. >> i think you are right. >> well, let's talk news and then a little gossip. >> there are terrifying moments at the knicks. this is a sports story. do it. you were a cheerleader once. why don't you talk about in? some terrifying moments at the knicks game last night. the cheerleader jamie wood loses her footing while being lifted on to her partner's shoulder. she landed on her head. she was put on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital. it caused the delay in the game but she was alert and able to wave to the rod. oh, boy. >> a violent crash caught on camera behind the wh
reported friday, one of the candidates for panetta's job, when he does go, is actually senator john kerry who is being considered for defense essentially as a consolation prize if he does not get the state department job which is what he truly covets because the assumption right now is, and there's a lot of support for her inside the white house, the president will nominate susan rice to succeed hillary clinton instead. but if rice does get nominated she could have a pretty big confirmation battle on her hands. many republicans, including a guy like south carolina senator lindsey graham who normally ends up confirming a lot of the president's appointments, did in the first term, is promising a brutal confirmation pick if rice is picked. >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. i'm not going to promote somebody i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. there are other people out there. i don't want to fight with the president over something like this, but there has to be an accountability. you just
and what exactly that information was. >> reporter: massachusetts senator john kerry, the chair of the foreign relations committee, has also expressed interest in the secretary of state job but today sources said he might be considered for secretary of defense instead if leon panetta leaves. and john brennan, the president's top counterterrorism advisor, has emerged as a leading candidate to fill the role unexpectedly vacated by david petraeus as director of the c.i.a. the news about susan rice's standing had all the feel of a trial balloon today, scott, as white house officials try to determine just how entrenched this republican opposition is and how difficult the confirmation process would be. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. an army prosecutor says that staff sergeant robert bales should be tried and executed for the massacre of 16 civilians in afghanistan. a preliminary hearing wrapped up today at joint base lewis- mcchord in washington state and john blackstone is there. >> reporter: sergeant bales, the prosecutor said, committed crimes that were heinous, brutal and methodical
senator john kerry who is very familiar with senator kerry actually played mitt romney in his debate prep. so they spent a lot of quality time together recently. the thing is everyone has known that senator kerry had an eye on the role of being the secretary of state to replace hillary clinton. his name was mentioned back in 2008 for that role as president obama considered who to put in for the cabinet. i think right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all

. for secretary of state, john kerry not just because he won't be the part but because he has the depth of knowledge and capacity to deal with the gnarly problems out there. let's face it, the agenda isn't pretty. even after we're out of afghanistan and iraq, the middle east is a mess. the iran situation is a conundrum and china is omnipresent. for defense, colin powell among the wisest and thoughtful military leaders out there plain and simple. the ccny grad, too. dennis or gary. dennis has proven to his advocacy of better markets they've fully understands and actions that need to be brought and during his more than 15 years as a partner one of the nation's largest and finest law firms, he proved he knows the actual nuts and bolts of the lawyering that is used to mask what is going on. genser will has been a wonderful rice for reform from his perch at the cftc. proven where you come from is effective of how you think. >> joe, the other half of the krugman equation. his nobel and writings prove he, too, is one of the few
charges. >> senator john kerry will be nominated to president obama's cabinet but not as secretary of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney lost the election wants to get to work. >> the issues we talked about sevenyears ago are what we have today. economy and debt-crisis and i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we have to find common ground to make it work. >> when asked about running on 2016. he said he was tired of presidential pilots right now. >> gas rationing in new jersey came to an end. the was put in place after gas shortages that had cars lined up for miles. governor christy said all supplies are replenished. darkne
the independent vote ended up losing the presidential contest. john kerry in 2004 won it by 1 percentage point, and then mitt romney in this election just last week won it by 5 percentage points but lost. it raises the question, you know, it's always good to win independent voters, but it might not determinative of an election. >> what is the lesson learned here. it's great to consider those that are independent, they're not strongly tied to one aparty or the other. if they're not the difference maker, not that they should be ignored, but how much do you play to them? >> the difference maker seems to be in all the elections the party identification. having democrats or republicans more than the opposition, that's a very good indication who is going to end up winning an election. the other thing is how do you define "independents"? are they right down the middle and swing from one election to another? or as the theory goes, when the political wins are against their party, they're republican, they're not happy with the republican party. they say i'm going to call myself an independent because i'
expressed similar concerns about rice. shep? >> shepard: senator john kerry's name has been floated to head the state department and now we're hearing maybe the defense department instead. >> insiders long feel that senator kerry wants. the late pentagon is a bit puzzling for some. decorated war veteran himself. kerry has taken heat for accusing the military for war crimes and stories about tossing away his own medals in protest it. republicans question how that record would go over with the military men and women he would be leading and representing and some democrats are quietly worried that kerry's nomination to head the feds would fed the swift vote opposition. senator kerry's only focus right now is his job as senior senator from massachusetts and chairman of the foreign relations committee. shep, as you mentioned, offensive these names are floated throughout just a trial balloon. >> shepard: shannon bream in washington. the state of washington's new marijuana law hasn't yet taken effect. people are already getting the benefit of it? prosecutors across the state have started dropping d
. >> is this a fight the white house wants to have, major? is john kerry looking like the better candidate now? >> well, that's for the administration to decide and they're getting early signals from republicans that if the president wants to go down this road and nominate ambassador rice, that it's going to be a fight and it's going to be game on and it will take on a very partisan and divided tone, very rapidly, whether the administration wants to do that and make a symbol not only of susan rice or go with someone far more easily confirmable like senator kerry might be a choice the administration wants to make but all indications is they're ready for a fight and up to the president to decide whether he wants to have it. >> thanks to see both of you. you can watch the president's news conference live at 1:30 eastern time here. in the meantime, congresswoman nancy pelosi is holding a news conference saying she wants to remain democratic leader in the house and aides said she made the announcement just a short time ago while talking with her caucus. let's listen.

democratic senator john kerry to serve as his next defense secretary. and that susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, would be his top pick to take over as secretary of state for outgoing hillary clinton. >> that means who would come in to replace him in the senate? >> that's the big problem right there. there would be a special election. a lot of people think that republican senator scott brown, outgoing republican senator would be the favorite. that's actually working against senator kerry's nomination for anything because you don't think that the democrats don't want to lose a seat potentially. >> that's what i was saying. >> the man who made sure our computers stay virus-free wanted for questioning in connection with a murder. this thing is a mess, too. john mcafee, of the popular anti-virus software, is in hiding after his neighbor was found shot to death in belize. police say they want to talk to mcafee but right now he is nowhere to be found. >>> republican congressman paul ryan says losing last week's election was quote, a foreign experience. but, in his f
with it. >> what about john kerry, rumored to replace panetta at the defense department. already calling the swift boat activity, saying he threw away his medals from vietnam, in no position to be defense secretary of the united states. >> senators look out for each other. and i think it will only be strategically possible to have one target, and susan rice is the natural target because the question is not just this question of was it or was it not terrorism. the administration put out a story about the role of the video that looks like it was covering itself after the fact, a story probably knew wasn't true or good reason to know it was not true. susan rice was the mouthpiece for that. that will be litigated over and over again. don't want a second distraction -- >> i heard he wanted to be secretary of state, not secretary of defense, but president is determined to make susan rice secretary of state, there's a fall back position, if you will. >> i think again, a solid nominee. swift boat stuff aside, frankly here is a guy didn't have to go over and fight for his country but strapped on
. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from general david petraeus in the coming days. there is more to be told and we will get to the bottom of it. we will see whether susan rice continues to stand by as we move forward in the process. bill: 12 minutes away, we have jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." martha: and we are awaiting a news conference on the attack and benghazi. we we'll have that live for you. also, a special agent who worked on the uss
considering senator john kerry, who has long wanted to be secretary of state, for defense secretary. the white house has also lock wanted u.n. ambassador susan rice to success hillary clinton, but officials say congressional leaders are now warning them that the controversy over benghazi could complicate her confirmation, and counterterrorism adviser john brennan is still a possibility, if he wants it, to take over at cia. a lot going on here. savannah. >> complicated is the word of the day. amitch nell washington. thank you. let's turn to retired colonel jack jacobs who is an nbc military analyst. first petraeus, and now general allen involved. on the stunner scale, where do you put this? >> seven. very startling, especially for those people who worked with these officers and known for them for years and years. really quite astonishing. do you know general allen? what is his reputation? >> i don't know him very well. i've met him on several occasions. he's a 1976 honors graduate of the u.s. naval academy. he's got a -- a masters degree from georgetown, from the national war college. he's quit
wanted to tell you earlier but did not have the chance. john kerry is my friend. i worked so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help them. he came very close. there has been no better legislator that i served with. he has been way out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development, many other things. i do not know any conversation with the president or anyone in the white house has had with him. any conversation i have had with john kerry, he does not bring up the secretary of anything. i'll do everything i can to help him if he is chosen. we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable that massachusetts will -- i have already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think are his priorities -- his party should be? parties -- toent partie protect the middle-class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of representatives bring up our bill. we have brought up their bill -- it was roundly defeated. they should
should bring john kerry in to. >> caller: to talk about iraq? i'm sure no one did. they didn't even ask al gore, who won the popular vote. >> stephanie: that's what drives me insane. that's the premise. >> caller: you have to watch out every time david gregory says just one more thing. the next question is going to be a barrel full of stupid. my favorite was the brown-warren debate and i emblazoned this question on my mind so i would never forget. we have only five minutes left, let's deal with some other issues. what about afghanistan. after spending 20 minutes on something that may have been or not have been on her job application. oh, oh by the way, the war we're having, what do you think. >> president johnson, do you see a role for senator goldwater in your administration. >> caller: whoever asked that. whoever asked that would get halfway through the question and lyndon would have his peculiar pecker on thatthat in his pocket. >> stephanie: now we have to go. >> caller: now make sure that your little petraeus is behaving behaving. >> we'll talk with charlie about that next week. >
interesting watching all of this move around. senator john kerry for the past month or so, there's been a lot of buzz about him, perhaps as secretary of state, that he was interested in that. it sounds like the president may have other plans for him. >> reporter: yes, possibly defense secretary. kerry is a navy veteran and he was very involved in the president's re-election effort. kerry played governor mitt romney in the president's debate prep. his name had been floated as secretary of state. but if ambassador rice gets tapped for that job the post reports that senator kerry may get the nod to the pentagon. kerry's o*fs will say that quote senator kerry's only focus is as senior senator from massachusetts. leon panetta says he's focusing on looming se sequestration defense and budget cuts and other defense challenges. he also says it's no secret that he wants to get back to his private life in california. martha. martha: we will see. molly, thank you very much. bill: if you had a vineyard in california -- judge you'd want to get back there too. bill: you'd probably be daydreaming about it a
that happens in washington a lot. the other candidate, of course, would be senator john kerry. very likely candidate since he's involved very much in international affairs and yet susan rice seems to be -- that names seems to be rising to the top. >> as you mentioned, secretary's flexibility will allow the president to nominate nsomeone who may not get confirmed and go to plan b. the president just lost a safety director. he's going to lose secretary clinton. his afghan war general involved in a scandal. is this shaping the president's foreign policy, without him directing it? are there real effects to all of this, do you think, worldwide? >> at this point, no, i don't think that. and one of the reasons is that the foreign policy really, a lot of it comes directly from the white house. there is a lot of control by this administration over what the direction is. after all, the president is one who is in charge and secretary clinton certainly has been very much a part of creating some of that, and carrying it out. but i think you have to say that at this point to say that when she leaves or
pieces? senator john kerry, who chairs the senate foreign relations committee, has, it's been widely known, long wanted to be secretary of state. if susan rice gets the state nomination, he could be put up for secretary of defense. or not. he says he's right now focused on his job in the senate. another possibility is the president has said he would lake to have a bipartisan cabinet. defense is a good place to put a republican, a republican such as former senator chuck hagel, for example. that's just one name i've heard bandied about. or you could put that person at cia. although the talk is that john brennan, the current homeland security adviser, is the man who could get cia if he wants it. but there's no knowledge about whether or not he wants it. and if he doesn't take it, mike morrell, the current acting director is considered the shoo-in for that job, wolf. >> he's got a full treasury secretary as well. there's speculation that jack lew could get that position. jessica, there'll be a lot of shuffling going on over at the white house. thanks very much. >> thanks, wolf. >>> the d
if president obama names senator john kerry to his cabinet, senator brown is rumored to be a contender for massachusetts governor in had 2014. but brown insists his immediate future is focused outside of politics. >> there's no vacancy that i'm aware of and my biggest job now is to make sure there's a smooth transition from my office to the senator elect's office. there's not an opening right now for governor nor is there an opening for senator. but there is an opening for a dad and a husband, and that's the role that i want to play. >> wrote today about the future of conservatism. you say the challenge between self-reflection and cannibalization. >> for all the talk of the civil war within the gop, i just don't see it and it certainly doesn't have to happen. i think self-reflex is good and conservatives need to talk about what just happened. they also need to remember that they didn't bother explaining to anyone over the past four years why conservative politics work. they were on defense for four queers talking about obama this, obama care that. they didn't explain why their policies
